Wild Wonders: An Anthology of Short Nature Stories for Children
Wild Wonders is a gorgeous collection of short stories about nature by some of Ireland’s best children’s authors with illustrations by some extremely talented illustrators. Each story is a reminder to us to keep our eyes open to the beauty of the nature that surrounds us no matter where we live.
The stories within this anthology show us how nature has the power to heal wounded souls and bring people together. Nature doesn’t cost anything but gives so much comfort, joy and wonder to the protagonists in the prose. Some of the stories in this book are very short indeed and a couple take the form of poems, but even in the briefest of stories we are shown the expanse of what nature has to offer us as humans.
This is a beautiful book to read together, and each story has an accompanying illustration. This book is a great starting point that will definitely inspire further conversations about nature and perhaps encourage readers to have their own adventures with nature. In a lovely touch, there are some ruled pages at the back where the reader can write and illustrate their own story.
